We may have just entered September, but at the Book People we believe it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas! With the children just back at school and autumn just around the corner, it may well be the furthest thing from your mind at the moment, but the festive season, with all its jingle bells and whistles, will be here before you know it. Why not grab a bargain from our Early Bird Christmas Shop to save the rush?
We have a collection of beautiful handmade Christmas cards that are sure to delight your neighbours, friends and family. The cards feature a whole host of Christmas characters, including Santa and his reindeer. The cards are also included in a gorgeous keepsake box. Children love to open their advent calendars so they know how many days they have left until the big day. Usborne’s Advent Calendar to Colour has a busy street scene with masses of things to colour and delightful pictures behind every die-cut window that also needs colouring. The book also stands independently to make a fantastic Christmas display, and what’s not to love about a book that features a skiing penguin?
If you have a passion for crafts, the 12 Knits of Christmas has knitting patterns for making all of the items mentioned in the song and also has a wonderfully illustrated book that contains the lyrics to each verse. Another subject that always features heavily over Christmas is food, and who better to draw inspiration from than Delia Smith? Delia’s Happy Christmas will help you cook a wide range of culinary delights. From classic Christmas dinner to ideas for what to do with leftovers, Delia has it covered. She also advises you to make Christmas pudding and chutneys a month before so it’s never too early to get your hands on this Yuletide cookbook!
Celebrate Christmas is a bumper book packed with cooking and craft projects for Christmas and even includes a countdown schedule, while for those who get into a panic, Jilly Cooper’s How To Survive Christmas will help you keep calm throughout the holidays. Don’t forget, we also have a wide range of brilliant collections that would make amazing presents too – the likes of Mr Men, Little Miss and Roald Dahl are all sure to be warmly received on Christmas morning!
